Over in Dearborn at the Henry Ford Centennial Library, the fountain out front is an icon that costs $75,000 to run and maintain per year. But on top of that it needs a $750,000 restoration. And so now the city is toying with the idea of demo instead. The water works were a multimillion-dollar gift from the Ford family to the city in 1963; the base is made of Vermont marble.
